The Hardware to Choose
Classic two-story homes are never seen without a simple or grand staircase to allow transportation from one floor to another. Indeed, this structure has been a source of pride among homeowners since these stairs have become a focal point for art and architecture. The hardware of every staircase is considered carefully to suit the kind of architectural design you would want to appear in your staircase later.
The stair hardware will depend on the size of the house, the allowable cost and of course the preference of the owner. Although most homeowners would prefer to remain traditional and stick to wooden stairways, more and more architects are learning to convince their clients to use stainless steel for the stairways.
Stainless steel is more durable than wooden materials. It is resistant to rust, corrosion and stain so that the stairways may retain its original appearance and still look new even after a number of years. Moreover, it is definitely resistant to termite so you will not have problems regarding termites infesting your homes. In addition, this type of material is much cheaper so it is definitely cost-effective.
While stainless steel may be more durable and more cost-effective, wooden material still offers an old-fashioned and elegant appeal that will surely amaze guests and visitors. Take your visitors to a trip to the olden times with your timeless staircase and earn their heartfelt praises and admirations.
Whatever hardware is used in building the staircase, the most important notion to consider is still the safety of the occupants and those who will walk up and down the stairs. So choose the stair parts carefully.
